Will the Surface Duo Emulator support the new Apple M1 chip?

Frequent Contributor

Hi team,

maybe this question is already obsolete but is there any roadmap when the Surface Duo emulator will support the ARM M1 Chip from Apple?


I know from Android-devs that the Google's emulator is still not natively supported and it's very very slow.


To be fair, I haven't set up my Duo development setup yet, but maybe some of you have already tried it.

@tscholze our emulator image uses the Android SDK, so Surface Duo emulator users will have the same experience as other Android developers. I haven't tested it specifically but we'll be watching Google's progress.

Hi @Craig_Dunn 

thanks for the follow up. I just tested it and its more than just slow, it's unusable. I hope Google will release a M1 variant of its emulator as soon as possible.
